Reverse Strat Gypsy Pickguard for Righty Strat

Hendrix Style Stratocaster Pickguard

reverse strat voodoo pickguard

The reverse angle bridge pickup combined with a standard (non-reverse) headstock on a regular righty Strat results in tighter, more defined bottom end tones, since the shorter bass strings are also "picked up" closer to the bridge. The longer high strings are picked up further from the bridge for a smoother, warmer tone. This is why Hendrix played righty's strung left instead of lefty Strats-- and why Fender's Voodoo Strats (learn more at Strat-Collector.com) were configured as such, except for the reverse headstock. Think about it.

MetalShopMusic stocks loaded reverse Voodoo style pickguards for righty Strats. They call 'em "Gypsy Pickguards"... Available in a variety of colors the Gypsies are configured with Fralins, Duncans or a selection of Custom Shop vintage style pickups. If your body isn't routed for HB in the bridge, you'll need to do some routing so that the reverse angle bridge single will fit.

I've haven't found these pickguards unloaded, but below are some suppliers to check:
